Whether you like it or not, the fact is that we live in a world where texting is KEY in any new relationship. No longer do you simply call a girl up and ask her out on a date. No, you have to be smooth with your thumbs – but we’re talking about electronically, Jack.

Texting women can be an easy way to hit the jackpot or get kicked to the curb. If you don’t play your cards right, it’ll be sayonara, dude.

Here’s a few MUST KNOW “dos and don’ts” when you’re texting the ladies!

DO

Double Check Your Texts

If you own an iPhone (probably all of you reading this) then it’s that much more crucial to make sure the ridiculous spell check feature doesn’t accidentally fu*k up your game. There’s nothing worse than writing “what a cute little pussy you have,” when you really meant to say PUPPY.

Send Funny Memes and GIF’s

Both are insanely popular these days and if you send the right ones at the right time, she’ll actually be L’ing her A O – laughter is the best medicine, and also the easiest path to getting laid.

Respond in a Timely Manner

Two things: Girls hate when a guy responds immediately but also hate when you take too long to respond. You have to find that perfect buffer zone so you don’t look anxious but also not too indifferent. Yeah, this is a strange one, but I promise you’ll get it down.

DON’TS

Double or Triple Text

I’m not talking about sending a pair of texts back-to-back, there’s nothing wrong with that. But, if she hasn’t responded in 30 minutes from your last text, do NOT send another one. Whether it’s a text asking if she got the last thing you sent, or a repeat text of the same thing you said 30 minutes ago, either way it’s a bad idea. If she wants to talk to you, she’ll respond eventually.

Drink and Text

This can surely make things much more interesting if you’re both drunk. Just remember, you can’t undo a sent text. Once it’s out there, it’s out there and no matter how great it sounded in your drunken state, I can promise it won’t be received the same way. Phone companies need to install breathalyzers on phones. Genius!

Text Your Ex

Just stop it, dude. It’s basically the worst idea you’ll ever have. No matter what the circumstance is, just don’t. Delete her number immediately!

Be sure to remember all these tips next time you find yourself bored at home with your phone in your hand. You’ll thank us later!
